    Lol at your headline Kaiser. So true.

  2. mia girl says:

    It’s All Easy to see on the cover just how fried and fractured GOOP’s hair is.

  3. Birdix says:

    That cover looks like a poor man’s Martha Stewart. To judge a book by its cover, she may have run out of cookbook ideas and is phoning this one in.

  4. Rhiley says:

    OMG, Jenna Dewan and Channing Tatum have to stay together forever. I have never paid attention to her, but girl gots moves.

  5. word says:

    They tried to make Paltrow look so “unperfect” on the cover so she would relate to us common folk. Hilarious.

    Also, Beyonce was missing for all of 2015…now we’re seeing her more and more. She’s dropping a new album I’m presuming?

  6. Nancy says:

    A whiter shade of pale. She is a self-absorbed bore. Lest anyone think otherwise, I am not speaking of her ethnicity.

    • Rhiley says:

      Sadly, I might take a look at Goop’s new cookbook. I don’t do pintrest, which I know has a lot of great recipes, but I am getting bored with my meals of late. But I would be pleasantly surprised if they are not super complicated with a bunch of expensive ingredients found mainly at Whole Foods (I don’t do Whole Foods).

      • Nancy says:

        Try the Pioneer Woman on the Food Network. She’s a bit annoying but her recipes are easy and good. I love Ina Garten, but she can be a bit extravagant in her ingredients. There is nothing she makes that I wouldn’t eat. The woman has every ingredient, fresh, canned, bottled in her pantry. Try her lemon chicken, it’s fab. Pioneer Women, easy and inexpensive, Ina, a bit more involved but worth it if you have the time. LOVE her! By the by, Trisha Yearwood another one who just does home cooking but everything is fairly easy and uncomplicated and good. I should be a sponsor for the network! (All of their recipes are online).

      • Betsy says:

        I tried three PW recipes years ago, and they were such spectacular failures, I swore, never again.

        Serious Eats, the Kitchn, Smitten Kitchen, Ina Garten (Cape Cod a Chopped Salad!) and, occasionally, Food52!

      • tracking says:

        Betsy, I’m with you. Everything Smitten Kitchen is yummy, though at times a little elaborate. Same with Ina Garten and Food 52. I used to follow the Kitchn, but not lately. Will check out Serious Eats!

      • msw says:

        Surprisingly, I LOVE the Atkins recipes. Whoever they hired is absolutely amazing.

      • vauvert says:

        Smitten Kitchen is great for baking and her lasagna is divine but for easy, wholesome food from scratch, my only two sources are foodwishes.com (chef John is brilliant) and recipetineats.com – fantastic mix of easy to cook with regular ingredients from a Japanese blogger living in Australia. The day I discovered her blog I realized that between her, John and SK I will never buy another cookbook again. (I used to have over a hundred.) I cook daily and bake weekly and they have made a huge difference.

      • paleokifaru says:

        Awesome suggestions! I was just thinking about how I need to find some new easy recipes to incorporate in our standards rotation. I’d never heard of some of these so thank you!

    • Rhiley says:

      Whoops, didn’t mean to post my comment under yours. I was going to write a simple “Ha Ha” under your comment, because it is funny, and make my food boredom post elsewhere.

  7. Pumpkin Pie says:

    i just ‘love’ the font size difference between Goop’s and the other author’s name. I am sarcastic, of course.

  8. Norman Bates's Mother says:

    I hope Jude Law finally got around to educating himself about the wonders of contraception.

  9. lucy says:

    Gwyneth is poster girl for wretchedly unhealthy, unattractive, unflattering hair. And she wants people to take HER advice? HA!

    • mp says:

      yes…I think she wrote on GOOP that her macrobiotic diet contributed to her osteopenia, low Vitamin D and estrogen, and possibly even thyroid issues. (If I remember right, Bill Bradley also developed bone issues on a macrobiotic diet).

      She has been trying out different diets for forever it seems (veggie a la Stella McCartney, even some low-carb, and of course the cleanses).

      But hey, let’s trust her because she has learned her lesson (?), deigns to eat some animal foods now, and CLEARLY, the problem all along was gluten, nightshades, and other “poisonous” and “inflammatory” foods (says the science of Tracy Anderson and numerous sketchy healing people who may or may not have MDs.) THIS cookbook is really the path to health.

      It’s all good…

  10. frivolity says:

    Oh, bugger-off, Paltrow!

    (As a non-Brit, I’ve always wanted to say that.) :)

  11. Betsy says:

    I’m totally putting that book on my library list. Her first two books had some serious gems, and her co-author is amazing.

  12. Pants says:

    I love Charming Potato, he seems like such a fun guy. And these lip sync battles are getting so dope, these celebs take them so seriously now!

  13. LMS says:

    Yes, Gwennie, I’m sure it is all easy when you have a personal shopper, a nanny (or two?), a housekeeper, and a home chef. Easy peasy!

  14. pk says:

    She looks really bad on that cover.

  15. mp says:

    I wonder if this one will be more cost-friendly or if it’ll be savaged by the NYT again for having a $120 salad and $30 omelet! Maybe some day the co-writer will gossip about what it was like to recipe test with Goop.

    I’m still so pissed that she did that show in Spain about the pleasures of Spanish food and then essentially refused to eat the most quintessential Spanish foods featured on the show. Ah, privilege.

    • Kate says:

      I never got those complaints. Yes some of the recipes were expensive (although the writer clearly cherry picked the most expensive vendors possible), but it wasn’t a budget cookbook. Most big name cookbooks, even those from people like Nigella and Jamie, will have pricey recipes. Seafood in quantities that will break the bank, ingredients like saffron and truffle…I don’t think I own a cookbook that doesn’t have at least a handful of recipes that would cost well over $100, probably more like $300-400 if you were starting with nothing and had to go out and buy all the good quality pantry staples. Gwyneth’s book was not remotely unusual in that.

      It’s like her gift guides. People freak out because the total is hundreds of thousands, but that’s a pittance compared to the glossy magazines similar guides. Vogue recommends single items that are twice the cost of Goop’s entire list!

  16. tw says:

    Let’s be clear, these are not her recipes. She did not write this book.

  17. L says:

    Title should be “It’s All Easy When You Have a Staff to Help You!”

  18. Juliette says:

    JB is such a disrespectful little jerk wad. You can’t blame it on his stress or melt down anymore, he is just an ass**le. The drinking you could maybe be excused for. You’re on vacation having a beverage and want to take it with you – fine. But climbing up on a historical monument so you can have a picture of your a** hanging out? Then when told not to you get in a yelling and shoving match with security? How arrogant, ignorant and entitled can you be? He’s not a child anymore, he’s a young adult at this point and should know better. There are signs everywhere as well as security to stop this very thing, one more reason to dislike him.

    • Antonym says:

      I was just there for vacation last month (so glad my visit didn’t coincide with his) and there is absolutely no “accidental” way to explain this behavior. Areas are clearly roped off, there’s tons of space to walk around, beautiful views, and no beverage vendors in the ruins (all vendors are a good walking distance). In fact, one of the reasons they roped areas off is jerk-faces like JB were acting inappropriately with some leaving graffiti. The small minority of selfish jacka**es in the world depriving the rest of us the opportunity to further enjoy the historical significance of these sites.

  19. L says:

    Is Jude Law’s girlfriend pregnant yet?

  20. Sara says:

    Her hair on that book cover looks fried.

  21. fiona says:

    Does anyone know who buys her peasant cookbooks? Because I honestly don’t know one person that does.

  22. lisa2 says:

    Is this the same cover picture she used for her first cookbook. Because that picture looks so familiar.

  23. LAK says:

    That hair is awful. It’s condition is horrendous.

  24. annaloo. says:

    Let’s shoot Gwyneth and the Biebs off to some isolated island that they can’t get off of to return to civilization. We can use her hair as kindling to light the fuel
